ABA to spin-off newsletter section

Posted on October 26, 2009

On Monday, the American Bus Association (ABA) announced that the "Foundation Focus" section of the bi-weekly ABA Insider newsletter will be spun-off from its parent publication and become its own bi-weekly, stand-alone newsletter featuring exclusive coverage of ABA Foundation scholarship programs, research on motorcoach tourism and travel. The first stand-alone Foundation Focus will be published in one week.

"The ABA Foundation is enhancing its benefits to the entire industry through its research programs and scholarships that seed the future," said ABAF Board of Governors Chairman Doug Anderson. "For the 2009-2010 academic year, the Foundation awarded the highest number of scholarships in its history, as 19 scholars each received $2,500 to help them pursue careers in the motorcoach, tour and travel industry. In its 13-year history, the ABA Foundation has awarded nearly $400,000 to 158 students."
